I am a transfer student from Cape Cod Community College. Coming to Quincy College was a shock and has been an awful experience. From the disability services not meeting with me until the LAST week of class, as there was only 1 person doing the job of 5. To the Advising center being unable to advise me and just sending me home to my computer to register myself. I could go on and on. The only saving grace has been my absolutely wonderful Intro to Social Work teacher Sabrina Mohan. She has made my experience bearable and has been a source of support and guidance through the difficult times with other teachers and staff members. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have made it through my first semester, nor would I have decided to continue on at QC. She will be a constant in my educational endeavors and hopefully thereafter.

This school is physically very small. The school is actually in a building with many other offices, including the Social Security Office. It is a very strange layout. It is across from the Quincy Center Red Line MBTA train station which is of course helpful but parking is non existent except in the overpriced parking garage. You are charged two rates if you take day and then night courses.

The financial aid, business office and advising staff are less than pleasant and it seems like torture to do their job, which they do half of. If you attend this school you have your work cut out for you. Just to get your classes picked out, parking pass, financial aid squared away etc can be a lot of work and you will not get much help.

If you're going for Nursing that seems to be what QC caters too. Otherwise I would definitely skip going here. They offer very few classes, example: 1 class for my degree is only offered once a year at a time that doesn't work for me. Sucks for me! As I continue if my experience improves I will update my review. PS Yet again I'm having issues with the portal and am unable to register for a class that I need to take!

I like my school. It is located in a city adjacent to where I reside, and is easy to get to via the local buses and trains. The school has a high degree of diversity; there are students attending from several different countries. Since there is approximately four thousand students enrolled, Quincy College has a cozy feel, and smaller class sizes than at an University. I believe these factors allow each student to receive a high quality and personalized education. I am only a freshman in my first semester but I like it so much at my school and I believe a part of me will be quite sad when I graduate!

The schools has everything it needs to cater for it's students.

I would choose it again because it is a very affordable community college compared to the other community colleges. Secondly, it has very high standards; most of the professors are PhD holders. One of the best experience I have had was when I first came to the school, I was treated very nicely, even as an international student. They explained everything in details and helped me get through to the beginning processes.
